GUSTAV - Mobile Documentation and Online-Management of Catastrophic Events

The aim of GUSTAV is to develop a prototypical systems-platform as a basic information server used in case of natural catastrophically events. New tools will be created and tested.

Short Description

GUSTAV focuses on information about events and their consequential actions. By the use of GPS accuracy and reliability of given information, especial in spatial dimensions, should be warranted.

The following proceedings of catastrophic management are supported by GUSTAV:

  • Registration on the spot
    Event declaration, damage declaration
  • Local support
    Current information: about the event, about attributes
  • Event handling
    Subsequent invoices respectively local information queries as a basic for:
    analysis and reconstruction, commission of damage

The following technical components are used by GUSTAV:

  • A server to provide and store data, to validate event based notices, to allocate information in a cartographical environment and to integrate different web services
  • Client components via portable terminal, cartography – user profiles, use of existing expert – knowledge
  • Communication via GPS as well as checking and verification of alternative communication tools in case of natural catastrophically events
  • Spatial location by the use of GPS for event documentation (detection of the event, detection of damage, measuring points) and user information (fire brigades, police, civil service)
  • Legal restrictions
  • Cost effectiveness and potential of realisation
  • Alternatives of communications
  • Adoption and external information sources
